Kids Subjected to Unwanted Porn Online

An increasing number of children and teens are being exposed to online pornography.
 
That's according to a new study.

And in most cases, it's because they accidentally come across sexually-explicit web sites while surfing the internet. 

University of New Hampshire researchers found that 42% of internet users...ages ten to 17.. ssy they have seen online porn recently. Of those, two-thirds say they did not seek it out. 

But there is some good news, the same study found that fewer children are being solicited by predators online.

Experts says filtering and blocking software helped prevent exposure to internet pornography, but was not 100%effective.
